Brushing up at Solon’s Corridor Arts

SOLON– Corridor Arts opened a Main Street studio in mid-October last year, and interest in art classes and painting lessons is growing.
Offering watercolor, acrylic and drawing lessons for children and adults, the studio is run by Susan Kennicott and Lianne Westcot as a space to practice art. Their lessons and classes are a great way for artists at all levels to set aside time and create with color, line, shape and the other components of two-dimensional aesthetics.

Battling the budget crunch

Senior Advocates seek city funding for Old Gold Diner site manager

SOLON– Without senior dining, there’s no way to reach older residents of the community with needed programs.
The Old Gold Diner is the hub of the senior community.
When budget cuts forced the elimination of the site manager position and the introduction of packaged plastic meals, local supporters began rallying the troops.
As a result, representatives of Solon Senior Advocates met with Solon City Council members last week, seeking city funds to match county money for the site manager position.
